Cricket NSW launches responsible gambling campaign

first_img22nd October 2020 | By Robert Fletcher NSW Responsible Gambling Fund chairman John Dalzell said by having matches free of gambling advertising, it means that families can enjoy cricket without the concern that children are being exposed to gambling promotions. As a result of the agreement, neither Cricket NSW or the teams are permitted to sign partnership with a sports betting or gambling business. Email Address Topics: Sports betting Responsible gambling “Young people are under immense pressure to fit in and are more likely to take up gambling if they consider it to be a normal part of sport and they assume that everyone’s doing it,” Dalzell said. “The fact we are also able to provide education to our staff and players about responsible gambling helps in our objective of being a values-driven organisation.” Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Cricket NSW launches responsible gambling campaign Cricket New South Wales (NSW) will collaborate with Australian state’s Office of Responsible Gambling on new campaigns to help promote awareness of gambling harm. “It will remove the assumption that gambling is a normal part of cricket and it will refocus attention back on the game and the players; the way it should be.” The GambleAware campaign will take presenting partner rights to one Sixers and one Thunder match during the 2020-21 season, while all Cricket NSW, Sydney Sixers and Sydney Thunder staff and players will be offered gambling awareness education sessions. Responsible gambling Earlier this month, the NSW Independent Liquor & Gaming Authority (ILGA) reported a year-on-year decline in gaming machine net profit across clubs and hotels in the first half of 2020, mainly due to the impact of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis. “We are a purpose and values-based organisation and we are very happy to be able to partner with another organisation that brings a high level of social responsibility,” Cricket NSW chief executive Lee Germon said.

Event and business visitors have played a big role this year. Notre Dame versus Navy gave  a huge boost to visitor numbers. We’re seeing strong business and leisure events providing growth in Limerick,” he said.But the hotelier added that the city is not making a recovery at the same pace as Galway, Cork or Dublin.“The biggest sector lagging is the UK market, which is still about 35 per cent down. The talk now is on the need for a new product, a need to put packages together and get into the UK and market those. We need to work on getting that market”.And elsewhere in the region, hospitality providers are seeing a return of European holiday makers. A spokesperson for the Killaloe/Ballina Business Association said that the “European market has come back this year, and we are seeing a lot of German people visiting. There’s been some recovery too in the US market. We have been working with a travel agent in Limerick to bring the German market in and it has paid off”.

Kirubakaran and Justice B. Pugalendhi further directed the authorities to give fair opportunity to all Television Channels to cover the Festivals, so that, the sentiments of the devotees can also be addressed by the authorities.BackgroundA Writ Petition was filed by the petitioner for directions to the respondents to let them conduct Soorasamharam at Beach on 20.11.2020 and Thirukalyanam at Thirukalyana Mandapam on 21.11.2020 during Skanda Sasti festival 2020 at Arulmighu Subramaniya Swamy Thirukovil, Tiruchendur, Thoothukudi District within a stipulated time as fixed by this Court.It was contended by the Petitioner that the temple authorities are going to conduct Soorasamharam and Thirukalyanam within the precincts of the temple contrary to the practice of conducting the Soorasamharam at Beach and Thirukalyanam at Thirukalyana Mandapam during the Skanda Sasti Festival, 2020 at Arulmighu Subramaniya Swamy Thirukovil, Thiruchendur.It was further submitted that the Ancient Scripture Skandapurana was brought from Nepal and it was translated in Tamil by Katchiappa Sivachariar.According to the Sixth Kandam viz., Porpuri Kandam, a battle with Surapadma has to be conducted only in Beach and it is a tradition being followed for decades together.Contrary to that, it was submitted, the temple authorities are going to conduct the same within the precincts of the temple.It was further submitted that after giving a representation to the respondents, dated 16.11.2020, the petitioner came forward to file the instant Writ Petition.To this, the Court said,”The decision taken by the authorities to conduct the Soorasamharam within the precincts of the temple cannot also be found fault, in view of the pandemic situation.”The Court also remarked,”The authorities are also supposed to follow the Standard Operative Procedures and the devotees cannot also be allowed to congregate in one place.
